Building out Steelhead Productions Deutsch invested—massively—inbuilding out one of the largest agency owned production companies in the US. Steelhead can now truly deliver end-to-end editing and post-production services, from concept planning and shooting through to editing and finishing.

From a technology perspective, they demonstrate vast expertise in VFX, motion graphics, and animation for everything from broadcast spots to vertical social content. The 50,000 square foot facility boasts a cutting-edge soundstage and a scalable mixed-use content creation and editing production studio. Suffice it to stay that Steelhead is open for business, and lots of it.

All that production and post-production magic, however, depends on a solid technology infrastructure. The demands of these workflows will put any storage solution to the test. OpenDrives was up to that challenge.

The Challenge

Deutsch built out a 50,000 square foot, end-to-end production facility (Steelhead Productions) and needed a technology infrastructure that allowed for real-time collaboration for high intensity content creation workflows.

The Solution

Existing storage infrastructure could not keep up with the pace and demands of the creative teams.  With quick turnarounds for projects, production teams needed real-time access and collaboration while sharing projects from project initiation to post-production.  OpenDrives Summit and Summit X allowed Steelhead to create ultra-fast workflows and enabled teams to build content quickly.

The Result

Steelhead Productions allows clients to walk in with an idea and walk out the back door with a piece of content.  OpenDrives is the proven scalable backbone for the facility creating real-time workflows for video, VFX, 3D and graphic design artists.
